The Spurs have begun talks with DeMar DeRozan on a contract extension, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Over the summer, there were reports that the team was open to the idea of inking DeRozan to a long-term deal.

β€œThat’s not on my mind,” DeRozan said.Β β€œMy focus is to go out there and hoop. How everything will unfold, that’s how it will unfold.”

The shooting guard is making $27.7 million this upcoming season and he’s eligible for a four-year extension worth roughly $149 million (it would require him to turn down his 2020-21 player option). Such a deal would keep DeRozan under contract through his 34th birthday. Charania notes that nothing is imminent with regard to a Spurs extension with DeRozan.
